Not Yosemite

by SeldomSeen on Mar 11, 2009

I keep waiting for Daniel Duane to write something brilliant. A climber and surfer with a narrative gift and a talent for language, Mr. Duane seemed poised to become the de facto literary spokesman for Generation Y. In this second novel (or third depending on your count), however, Mr. Duane takes a major step backwards. The characters in ?A Mouth? are all of a type?vegan, politically correct, trust-funded grad students who seem motivated only by self-diagnosing their own neurosis. Principally, the theme is sexual obsession but, even in the throes of carnal passion, the characters can?t escape their own ?navel-gazing self-loathing.? Your first name would have to be Sigmund to find this nonsense erotic. Still, for all its faults, the prose is eminently readable. Mr. Duane can write. Hopefully for his next novel, he steps out of this post-yuppie Hell, and back outdoors where his characters might actually do something.
